I was lucky enough to sit down with the brilliant Matt Dillahunty (@Matt_Dillahunty) and Aron Ra (@Aron_Ra) at this year's QED Con in Manchester. We discuss the meaning and use of words such as Atheist/Agnostic. We touch on Humanism, William Lane Craig, Ray Comfort, President Obama and Chapel Hill. We'll also hear an explanation and deconstruction of the 'Kalam Cosmological Argument', plus much more!
Australian Singer/songwriter Shelley Segal (@ShelleySegal) will be dropping by this week's #GSPodcast to play us some live music! Shelley will also be telling us all about her godless songs which can be found on her 'An Atheist Album' which includes a tribute to Christopher Hitchens. We also have a great discussion about her Jewish upbringing, gender segregation, Pescetarianism, attending the Secular Conference in London, 'Sounds Of Freedom', Maryam Namazie and much more!
Originally released April 2015
The excellent Dr. Christian Jessen (@DoctorChristian) joins me on this week's #GSPodcast. He'll be telling us all about the ridiculous notion of 'gay cures', what they involve and what motivates their proponents (SPOILER: religion). Dr Christian underwent some of these 'therapies' as part of his superb documentary 'Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I'm Gay'. Some are horrific, others are just plain absurd. He'll be guiding us through them and explaining why they're harmful and unscientific.
We also touch on the notion of 'no platforming', quackery, homeopathy, Embarrassing Bodies, the lack of 'out' professional football players and much, much more!
Such a pleasure to have The Gadfather (@GadSaad) back on The #GSPodcast. We talk trigger warnings, Chapel hill, apologists for Islam, Militant Atheism, Russell Brand, house of cards, Charlie Hebdo, "nothing To Do With Islam", Curb your Enthusiasm, is Islamic reform possible? Evolutionary psychology, Chuck Morse, Hitler and Evolutionary theory, Ben Affleck & Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
